4 tablespoons Hawaiian Tropic Cool Aloe I.C.E. Burn Relief Gel with Lidocaine
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
10 to 30 spritz of cologne (10 is faint scented, 20 is medium, 30 is strong, ymmv )

Put it in a small glass container. I use an empty gourmet horseradish jar, but any empty spice container or little glass container with a big enough mouth that you can fit your finger in it will work. Don't fill it all the way up (leave some air for the shaking/emulsifying). Put the lid on and shake it until it is thoroughly mixed. It will turn into a creamy light blue color and be approximately the consistency of yogurt.

Just dab your finger in it and spread it on your face after you've shaved. Aloe is healing, the Lidocaine has a NICE cooling/numbing effect, and the EV Olive Oil penetrates and moisturizes. I spread a few dabs all over the shaved parts of my face, and then use a towel to wipe off my lips as I don't like the lidocaine sensation on my lips.

I've tried it with plain Aloe Vera gel instead of the Cool Aloe ICE, but the lidocaine really does some magic. Way better than Nivea, imo. There's 16 oz in my jar of Cool Aloe ICE, and it will last a LONG time.

The Cool Aloe ICE costs $10 on Amazon right now. You've probably got EV Olive Oil and Cologne. Give it a try!

Yes, the Olive Oil is for dry skin. I've switched to using Grapeseed Oil, though, as it is less greasy, absorbs into the skin a little easier, has less of a scent, and leaves a more satin feel than an oily feel.

I found out about the grapeseed oil on another forum, and it indeed works better than Olive Oil. I'm looking to get some Sandalwood Oil, too, to try a simple mix of Aloe Vera Gel, Grapeseed Oil, and Sandalwood Oil (and maybe some menthol). I think it would work pretty well. Unfortunately, good sandalwood oil is pretty doggone expensive! So I haven't bought any yet.

Good luck with your endeavor. I tried making an AF with Aloe and Witch Hazel and I was not impresssed, but hopefully you will be better off.
